"I never could get the hang of Thursdays"

Trust me to miss out on a bargain. This morning, when thowing out the flyers and folders that somehow made it through my letterbox in the last week or so, my eye caught on the notice that they were having a sale at Electric City, and that the Creative Zen Touch 20GB would be going for a song (or almost, at only 189,99 euros). Up until that moment, I hadn't seriously thought about getting myself an mp3 player, but over the course of the day, I managed to convince myself that I could not live another day without one. The thought that soon, I could go into town and get this shiny new gadget, was all that kept me going through another shitty day at work. All the way to the shop, I felt like I was walking on air.

And now I'm back home, without it. They had sold out.

I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

It's not bad. A colour screen would be nice, but it's not worth the extra cash to me. No software needed either. The main problem is that I found 20GB a bit small for my many many MP3s!

You could convert them all to wma and free up half the space...(at least, I think that's possible).

I'm a woman on a mission now: this weekend, I'll be trawling the Dixons and RadioCitys and MediaMarts on the hunt for my mp3 player!

I could convert them, but it would take an age! It took an entire night to put them on the machine!

O dear. Might be easier just to get another player! ;-)
